When President Trump confirmed that he wants to redesign Air Force One during his term in office, in an interview with CBS that aired on Tuesday, he told reporter Jeff Glor that he planned to repaint the iconic aircraft red, white and blue. When asked if he wanted to keep the current robin's egg blue design he said he would not. "Air Force One is going to be incredible," Trump told Glor. "It's going to be the top of the line, the top in the world, and it's going to be red, white and blue. Which I think is appropriate."
The CBS interview confirmed an earlier report by Axios, which said Trump planned to ditch the "Jackie Kennedy color" for something "more American."
The new Air Force One planes, which will be made by Boeing, will not be ready until 2024. (Though "Air Force One" designates the aircraft on which the President flies, it's not actually one single plane.) The new planes will be replacing a set that, according to the Department of Defense, have been in the air since 1987. At that time, President Ronald Regan chose to keep the Air Force One design that had been selected during the Kennedy administration.
That longevity sets the presidential plane apart: While the presidential cars are upgraded every few years for the newest, safest models, and the Oval office is regularly redecorated to reflect the changing times and the presidential personality, the design of Air Force One has remained the same since 1962
